Calendar Boy


During my most recent trip to Shenandoah National Park Tuesday I encountered this massive whitetail buck. Even with one antler beam missing he is an impressive animal.

Upon returning home and comparing photos I concluded that this is the same buck that I photographed in 2007 and is published in the Pa Game Commission 2009 Calendar. Too compare his rack click here to view his 2007 image.

It was obvious during Tuesday’s visit that the rut had ended. The deer were exhibiting typical winter feeding and resting patterns. Interestingly enough, although I witnessed considerable rutting activity in Pa on Monday, since my return from SNP Pennsylvania rutting activity has ground to a halt also.

He is handsome, even if he is un even.

Wow!! This is certainly a good size buck and does not seem too concerned about you being there to take pictures either.

What a big, grand looking buck! He looks as if he is communicating some thoughts to you!

If you took my picture, I would hope you would photoshop it too!
